Upgrades and the web.config file

If you have customized your configuration by modifying the web.config file, running the Upgrader does not affect your customization.

If you want the release upgrade to include any previous customization that you made to the web.config file, you have to merge the changes from the existing web.config file, with the web.config file from the upgrade.

After upgrading Unica Discover to 12.1.1, check the web.config file in the <Install location>\Configuration Files location.

The following changes should exist in the web.config file. If the changes do not exist, add the changes to the file and save the file.

  1. controlRenderingCompatibilityVersion should have the value 4.0.
  2. Under <system.webServer>, confirm if the following sections exist:
    <remove fileExtension=".xpi" />
    <mimeMap fileExtension=".xpi" mimeType="application/x-xpinstall" />
    <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseExpires" httpExpires="Sat, 31 Dec 2050 00:00:00 GMT"/>
    <httpCompression directory="%SystemDrive%\inetpub\temp\IIS Temporary Compressed Files">
    <scheme name="gzip" dll="%Windir%\system32\inetsrv\gzip.dll"/>
    <add mimeType="text/*" enabled="true"/>
    <add mimeType="message/*" enabled="true"/>
    <add mimeType="application/x-javascript" enabled="true"/>
    <add mimeType="/" enabled="false"/>
    <add mimeType="text/*" enabled="true"/>
    <add mimeType="message/*" enabled="true"/>
    <add mimeType="application/javascript" enabled="true"/>
    <add mimeType="/" enabled="false"/>
  3. Under customHeaders, confirm if the following tags exist:
    <remove name="ETag"/>
    <add name="ETag" value=""""/>
